Movie Review Introduction

To conclude our Predator movie review playlist, we finish with The Predator (2018).

We have a guest with us this week, Henry is back. He couldn’t stay away and wanted a chance to get a huge weight off of his chest. You can find Henry on his YouTube channel, ‘The Bond Geek‘.

Also, an honourable mention of AVPCentral.com. A very useful website built and run by Janno. Paul and Janno engaged in conversation via Instagram, which ended-up with them talking about web development. Anyway, AVPCentral.com and look for AVPCentral on Instagram 👍🏻

Paul rants, Justin rants, and Samir saves the best till last. Join us as we talk about the utter disappointment that was, The Predator.

Movie Synopsis

From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race

Movie Information

The Predator is a 2018 American science fiction action horror film directed by Shane Black and written by Black and Fred Dekker. It is the fourth instalment in the Predator franchise. Black had a supporting role in the original film, while John Davis returns as producer from the first three instalments. The film takes place between the events of Predator 2 (1990) and Predators (2010). Starring Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn, Thomas Jane, Alfie Allen, and Sterling K. Brown, it follows a group of PTSD-afflicted soldiers and a scientist who must team up to fight off an invading pair of Predators and discover their plans for mankind.

Talks of a new Predator instalment began in June 2014, with Black being confirmed as writer and director; much of the cast signed on between October 2016 and January 2017. Filming took place in British Columbia from February to June 2017, with the climax being re-written and re-shot in July 2018 following poor test screenings.

The Predator premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 6, 2018, and was theatrically released in the United States on September 14, 2018, by 20th Century Fox, in IMAX and Dolby Cinema, as well as standard formats. The Rotten Tomatoes critical consensus calls it “another missed opportunity”. It grossed $160.5 million worldwide on a $88 million production budget, becoming the highest-grossing film in the franchise.
